“Requirements” are one of the major reasons for software-intensive system failures. Most of the requirements related problems emerge as results of changing requirements. To manage changing requirements in a better way many requirements change management (RCM) process models have been proposed in the literature. Process models facilitate human understating and communication, supporting process improvement and process management. Coverage of process elements and representational perspectives has an affect on process model. This paper reports evaluation of current requirements change management process models present in the literature on the basis of process model elements and representations. The aim is to highlight deficiencies in the current RCM process models, and to propose process ontology and the use of business process modeling notion (BPMN) to model RCM process.
